The untold story of Stiv Bators – the charismatic singer was the original embodiment of the self-destructive punk frontman with the DEAD BOYS before embarking on a solo career. He went on to team up with members of SHAM 69 in THE WANDERERS. His greatest success came in the mid-80s with THE LORDS OF THE NEW CHURCH before his untimely death at the age of 40 in Paris in 1990.
 
Complete with never released 8MM footage from private collections, a killer soundtrack, and accounts from the people who were with Stiv through various phases and projects of his life and career. Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Jimmy Zero (Dead Boys), Nick Turner & Dave Tregunna (Sham 69), Frank Secich (Blue Ash, Stiv Bators Band, Deadbeat Poets), Cynthia Ross (B-Girls) and many others have participated in telling Stiv’s story.
